area boasts the biggest colony of pelicans in Europe. There are over 150 species
of fish (carpet, pike, perch, sheat-fish, sturgeon – famous for their black spawns)

Romanian balneary and climatic resorts: Romania has important mineral water and
thermal resources (almost 70% of the balnear potential of Europe), one of which
has unique characteristics. The use of these waters in the balnear treatment began
in Roman times when the waters’ special therapeutic effects from Herculane and Geoagiu
were recognized. The balnear tourism developed over time with balneoclimateric resorts
in which are thermal and mineral waters, therapeutic mud and salt caves. In the
newer resorts, you will find beauty centers, fitness, sauna and relaxing massages.
There are also other balneoclimateric resorts situated in mountain or plain regions
with spectacular landscapes where you can enjoy long and invigorating walks.
